Ohio Child Support Calculator

Commitment to supporting our children.

The Ohio Child Support Calculator will provide an estimate of the support obligations that may be included in a court or administrative child support order.

Before you get started

You will need to have gross annual income information for at least one parent to get calculation results. Having information for both involved parents will yield more accurate results.

Income can be from employment, self-employment, workers' compensation, unemployment, disability/retirement benefits, or other annual sources of income, as well as overtime, bonuses, and commissions for last three calendar years.

You may want to prepare information about child care expenses, health insurance premiums, pre-existing child support orders, and spousal support amounts for inclusion in the calculation.

The Child Support Web Calculator will be unavailable beginning March 28, 2019 for updates necessary to accommodate legislative changes. We anticipate the calculator will be available to users again this summer. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please Note:
This calculator cannot be used to calculate a support obligation for circumstances where the parties have a combined annual gross income below $6,600 or above $150,000. If either of these circumstances apply, you should consider contacting an attorney and/or your local child support enforcement agency.

Disclaimer: Knowledge of the financial circumstances of both parties as well as an understanding of Ohio family law and Ohio and federal tax law is necessary to complete the worksheet accurately. If you have questions about child support or the Ohio child support guidelines, you should consider contacting an attorney.
